Health Tip: Benefitting From Cross-Training

07/14/11

(HealthDay News) -- Cross training involves many different types of exercises, making your fitness routine more fun and beneficial.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says benefits of a cross-training program may include:

  • Toning the entire body because of the variety of activities.
  • Better likelihood of sticking with your exercise routine.
  • Better preparation of muscles for new exercises, and working more muscle groups.
  • Reduced risk of overuse injury.
  • In case of injury, you may still be able to perform some of your usual exercises, with some modifications.
